Hello! I'm Shu Garbuglia and I'm a children’s book illustrator. I work with publishers, businesses and private clients to illustrate the stories they propose to me.

I want to help people insert a bit of creativity and colour into their lives, bringing them back to the dimension of childhood and awakening wonder.

In 2017 I attended the Master in Illustration for Publishing at the Ars in Fabula school in Macerata. On that occasion I began to collaborate with the publisher Feltrinelli with whom I have published, since 2019 "La leggenda del paese dove nascono le parole", "Ecciù! La biblioteca ha il freddo" and "La scuola magica", written by Michela Guidi. In 2022 I've puvlished "La Resistenza spiegata ai bambini" by Francesca Parmigiani with BeccoGiallo.

I live in Rome, but work all over the world. My inspirations are nature and the magic of childhood. My passions? Books, cinema, TV series, art, dogs and of course atravelling.
